I was lucky enough to be commissioned recently by the awesome folks at Rising Arts Agency to write a piece of music in response to the question “What does lockdown sound like to you?” This is what I came up with.
I decided to only use free tools for this (I cheated a little when mastering tbh) as my self imposed limitation. I wrote a short blog post too over at Rising’s blog talking about what tools I used and why I wrote what I wrote, if you’re interested you can check that out here.
Had a little break from blogging for a while but, given the current situation I currently have a lot of time on my hands so I’ve decided to do the Video Game Music Academy “21 Days of Video Game Music” challenge!
I’ll be writing a new piece of music every day for the next 21 days, some of these will just be quick sketches or ideas and some will be a bit more fleshed out or (hopefully) finished. I’ll also write a short blog post here about each one and if I use any novel or interesting (at least to me!) techniques I’ll talk about them here. I’ll be sharing them on twitter too, and you can follow the hashtag #21DaysofVGM to see what other folks taking part in the challenge are doing.
